Woolly rhino is found - level 2
People found the remains of a baby woolly rhino in Siberia. The 60-kilogram body of the animal was in good condition – it still had its wool, face, one eye, an ear and teeth. All of this was well-preserved.
The animal is more than 10,000 years old and people named it Sasha. Its condition was so good because permafrost preserved it. Permafrost is a type of ground which is always frozen. Russian scientists will now try to extract the animal’s DNA.
Difficult words: remains (parts of body which remain – exist for many years), woolly (having wool – a thing which covers animals like sheep), preserved (in good condition).
